You are on a flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv and should land at Ben Gurion Airport at 22.00. on Thursday?

There may be a delay because another landing is scheduled for the same time, which is listed in the arrivals area on the airport authority's website, even though the destination in this case is not Tel Aviv, but the moon.

Israel will make history on Thursday night when the space probe Beresheet from SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries land on the moon. Israel is only the fourth country to land on the moon.

Last week, Beresheet successfully left Earth's Earth orbit, letting the Moon's gravity into its own orbit. The maneuver, called Lunar Capture, was the most complex in a series of maneuvers conducted by Beresheet and is already a historic achievement as Israel was only the seventh country to do so. The highlight of Beresheet's journey, however, is the long-awaited lunar landing, which takes place at around 10 pm. Israel time Thursday night.

The 49-day journey is probably the longest flight on the airport authority's website and obviously a gag, but the cute tribute shows how excited Israel is from Beresheet's expected lunar landing.

Here you can follow Beresheet about the final descent.
